My name is Eran Tahor, I am based in South Africa and I am a cinematographer.
What I love most about my profession is the ongoing practice of discovering the extraordinary in what appears to be mundane reality.
Pausing for a second look, holding the gaze and searching for an angle that best serves the story, my exploration of cinematography spans nature’s landscape to the landscape of the human face.
I work in different genres: documentaries to commercials and all forms of long narrative. I love the experimental nature of art films and the fun of music videos.
The process of unpacking a great story and seeing it through from the words on a page to scanning the frame through the viewfinder is a wholesome experience for me.
And although there is much that is changing in our industry – mostly driven by technology, our search for great stories told compellingly remains constant.
